Re: NVDA and edge

I too tried Edge tonight. I only tried the BBC Website and it was slightly stuttering and a bit painful with jaws 2018 even with Edge support turned on but I was delighted with the the performance   of Edge and NVDA.

As I say I only looked at a few BBC news stories but nevertheless the performance of NVDA in being so snappy in responding to the browser and reading content  was very reassuring. With these pages at least I will not be left behind with web access as long as NVDA keeps up its support..

Thanks and congratulations must go to the NVDA developers for the enormous amount of work which must have been involved in getting this support nailed on to Edge.

I do like Edge. Now that Firefox is going down its road of dubious screen reader accessibility, Edge may well become what Internet Explorer used to be.

Hi, David,

 

Maybe edge will be even snappier when NVDA 2017.4 comes out next month.

Hi all!

Edge is almost my daily browser.

With NVDA, it is very snappy for me, and I can navigate complex web pages, just like with Chrome.

I can play videos, use sites like espn.com, stream TV in Edge, and on and on!

Edge is my browser 80 percent of the time with NVDA.

JAWS is another story, but the latest NVDA and Windows 10 1709, fall Creators work very well with Edge.

I would give Edge with NVDA a B + at least!
